What are you running? I’m having a hell of a time trying to make a decision on getting some new gear with all the choices out there.
You never disappoint on your gear collection!I've got sets of lightweight ran jackets/pants.
The first I'd call lightweight- it's a Rab Flashpoint- the lightest three layer rain jacket made I think (7 oz)- absolutely no bells or whistles, but it works. The pants I pair with them are a Montbell pant that's no longer made- zip to a little below the knee, no bells/whistles either- 6 oz.
The other is what I'd call uber light- it's Rab's new Phantom line- jacket weighs 3 oz and the pants 2.5 oz- not a misprint These actually work pretty well, much better than I would have thought.
I'll take the second pair when it shows no chance of rain (as everyone knows there is always a chance in the mountains). The other when there is a chance.
Neither set I would feel comfortable bringing hunting, they are just not durable enough for much off trail stuff.
Generally speaking brand to brand not store to store.. but you knew that and your just trying to make a point I understand.So you're saying it's like owning clothing that's sold at Target and owning clothing that's sold at Bloomingdales.
